SUGAR AND TARIFF
The grower of beet sugar and the
manufacturer thereof into sugar In this
co:n.ry are Just now do'ng some ffgOrtrf
as to how their business may be effected
should th present tariff on foreign sugar
by th declaration of one of Oregon's
senators that he believed In free trade
and had strong hopes that the advocates
of that policy would toon be in control of
the United States. To assist in reaching
a correct conclusion on this question the
Observer will giv some facts pertinent
to the inquiry and leave its readers to
draw their own conclusions.
- The present tariff on imported sugar
not above No 16 Dutch Standard, that is
89 degrees or less, polarization, is nine
teen twentieths of a cent per pound, on
sugar of higher grade the tariff is one
cent more or one and nineteen twentieths
of a cent on the pound.
The monthly average price of foreign
beet sugar imported into the Uuited
States, in the countries from which
shipped, was for the grades 16 and below
in October 1905, one cent and seven
and seven tenths mills, and the price of
th same class of cane sugar was 2 cents
and one and one fifth of a mill per pound.
The wholesale price of sugar No. 16
in the United States on October 29, 1905
was S cents per pound for centrif ugats.
96 degrees polarization it was 5 cents
five and three fifths mills per pound, and
for standard granulated it was four cents
and four and one half mills. If the sugar
beet grower think they can improve their
business by opening the market of the
United States to one cent and seven and
seven and seven tenths mills a pound on
foreign sugar they know how to do it
and will vote for th removal of the tariff
TO WHAT END?
To what end will Russia finally come?.
is the question on every hand. What
will be the" results of the bloody strife
now apparent within her borders? No
one can answer. Only time will tell. It
is evident tiata great metamorphose is
at hand, but to the poor misguided people
of the dark nation, there teem but little
hope of a dawn of freedom. Faction
after faction exists. There is the auto
cracy, now In power; the revolutionist,
composed of half a dozen factions.
struggling for existence; the rabble, which
calls for th death of th Jew and intell
ectual, and the anarchist Not on of
these hava the same end in view.
Witte's honors, attained in th closing
of the bloody war between his country
and Japan, are fading into obscurity.
Because he has failed to stem the torrent
of insurrection to the Great White Czar'
liking, his influence is being usurped by
his master and his downfall is plotted.
Chaos reign upreme. Who will be the
leader to emerge from, the gloom that
obscures stricken Russia and lead her to
cold and starvation in the great
cities is doing much to break the strikes
instituted by the working men. Th cry
fot bread and th incessant demand for
shelter has forced liberty from their minds
and has given necessity the supremacy.
The spirit of unrest will continue, however.
and at a not far distant time, th yoke of
oppression will be cast aside and Russia
will walk unafraid among the newer
Th proposed electric railroad for
